I blew it bigtime!

Hey, this oughta get a chuckle out of some of you...
I have Debian Sid with kernel 2.6.4, self-compiled, working fine untill...
I decided to recompile the kernel again, changing some stuff around, building 
more stuff into it, and taking more stuff out...
when I did 
dpkg -i kernel-image-2.6.4_custom.2.0_i386.deb
I got an error at the end, something about couldn't make initrd image, but I 
figured what the heck, it will still boot off the old kernel, since the 
entries were still in /boot/grub/menu.list.
I can no longer boot at all, kernel-panic etc, so I am writing this while 
booted to Knoppix.
I can't see how to use this as a 'recovery disk', cuz everything I try to do, 
requires root access, and Knoppix by default has all accounts locked, and no 
passwords, etc.
I was gonna try to reinstall my other kernel, but can't.
I am now hopelessly hosed, please advise!
